2 years doesn’t get as much press as 1 year, and yet it is just as important as any other marriage milestone. Representing strength and adaptability, cotton is the traditional theme for a 2nd anniversary gift, but as you can see from this selection of gorgeous ideas, that doesn’t mean you’re restricted to dishcloths and bedsheets if you want to stick to convention.
